"With the Knights Templar rests the secret
of combining the grand and enjoyable. The
reception of the Mount Cavalry commandery
ot Masonic hall on Thursday evening was
without doubt the most brilliant and delight
ful gathering of the devotees of society dur
ing the season. Two or thrco days had been
spent in decorating the rooms alone , and the
results of this labor was most enchanting.
The lodge rooms nnd dining hall were tastily
adorned with ( lowers and smllax , hut the
greatest piece of artistic work was the deco
ration of the dance hall. The upper half of
the walls were completely hidden with largo
flags , while immediately below them were
numerous banners bearing the mysterious
insignia of tlio order. On the front of the
hall two great flags were draped apart to expose -
pose the huge painting of n mediaeval castle ,
the knights' stronghold. The platform in
front of this was completely covered
with potted plants , in three corners
of the room stood tents , liiHide
of them n simple repast called the "pilgrims1
farewell. " The muijnlllcent banners of the
order stood near these , ono of them glitter
ing with costly diadems. Near the door
stood n knight's steed caparisoned and ready
for battle. The long hallway leading from
the dance room to the banquet hall was hum ;
nnd canopied with flags , nnd was lltly dubbed
the "lover's lane. " At the north end of this
was a locomotive headlight , but the glare of
It was subdued by placing tissue paper on the
At 0 o'clock the trumpet sounded nntl the
knights in full uniform tiled into the hall to
the stirring strains of "Marching Through
Georgia , " Their evolutions were superb and
were loudly applauded.
Major Clurkbou then delivered the welcom
ing address. Dnnciug followed , and the ele
gant dancing programmes were gems of
taste and art , nnd will long bo treasured as
beautiful souvenirs of a delightful occasion.
After the tripping of seven numbers the
company mavehcd to the dining hall at the
south end of the building , where , amid good
fellowship and repartee , n splendid supper
was partaken of. The following is the unique

mentary articles concerning the most im

that the prime factor of modern Journalism
is the reporter. Hear in mind that the edi

M. JACKSON. '
Now York Mail and Kxprcss : it ia
erroneously supposed by inntiy that a
sclf-windintfcloek muslobtain its motive )
power from uluolriunl notion und there
by be subject to the inimy objections
and hindrances resulting from tin entire )
dependence on a constant current.
"Tho motive power of our clock , "
said tlio general agent of n largo con
cern on Dey street to a reporter , "is de
rived from the action of a line spring , aa
in tlio ordinary clock. The term self
winding rosuita from the following :
Two small cells of a battery are placed
ia the top of tlio ease and connected with
a motor securett to the lower part of the
movement. As the center wheel ,
driven by the unwinding of the spring ,
makes one revolution around the nub it
brings up a loose arm which slips undoi ;
a stationary projecting arm fastened to
the train plate. Tlio moment the con
tact takes place the circuit IB closed ,
and the action of the little motor ro
tates the barrel containing the Bprhifj
one revolution from left to right , and
and winds up just as much of tlio sprinpf
as has been required to run tlio cloclc
during tlio last nlxty minutes , Tlio
bprlng barrel itself carries"an arm
which rtlidos the. loose arm from under
the projecting arm , thus breaking the
circuit ; the same operation is repeated
every sixty minutes. To thoao familiar
with mechanism it will be quite appar
ent how simple aud practical ia thia
"Tho Invention lies in bringing a
motor and clockwork together iii a
timo-pieio , and is not limited to any
particular device. Kxporhmsnts prove
that'a motor , as constructed for tlio
purpose , can bo run for ono year at an
expense of legs than "on ; hence a clock
may bo .scaled up and left to itself for n
period of at least one year with n cer
tainty of closer time during that neriod
than cun bo seimred by any other Iniov/n
method of giving time , In short , n
common clock constructed on this prin
ciples lias been found to keep aa
accurate time as oao ot the higher
grades with gravity oscayomonts , run
by the old methods. "
Self-winding clocks are in great de
mand by railway cornorations , some of
which now have them in operation ,
